Hi,

I going to install 2 x 5/16 aluminium tubing for future turbo setup while the subframes are removed.

Can you fit 5/16 lines behind the subframes. Same as original fuelling location. Or do you have to go over the rear subframe.

Didn't want to bend the lines in place to find out you can install the subframes.

MK1 mini shell and subframes.

Thanks! *smiley*

I'm not sure if it is the same for mk1 shell - as in whether there are any differences in this area compared to a '78 shell - but there is more room than you'd think to get the pipes in under the rear subframe.

Just a fair bit of bending and shaping to miss everything.

I used Cupro Nickel (KUNIFER).

I've ran two 3/8" AN Hardline lines between the heel board and subframe without clearance issues.

No problem here either, 8mm flow, 10mm return, copper (microbore central heating pipe).




Just use a decent bending tool to get the tight radius's required, do NOT try to bend by hand,

Schrödinger's cat - so which one am I ???
